Prints and Originals Gallery | The Diamond Sea

  • 13 June — 13 July 2017 *on now

The Diamond Sea, an exhibition of new paintings by five exciting artists currently working in London, will be installed in the Prints & Originals Gallery from 13 June to 13 July 2017.

The Diamond Sea brings together works by five contemporary figurative painters based in London. The exhibition takes its inspiration and title from an unapologetically romantic song by the American post-punk rock band Sonic Youth - “Sail into the heart of the lonely storm/ And tell her that you love her eternally”.

These paintings are connected by a shared interest in glimpsed beauty, holy moments, and furtive longing. The persistence of romantic ideals parallels the longevity of painting; a medium especially suited to carrying complex emotions forward with its unique sense of time and place.

This exhibition has been curated by Kristian Day.
